What's In Your CD Player - a.k.a. The Music Thread
wait, really? rise against and fob in the same comparison? the suggestion that rise against did something other than rise up out of **** little underground bars?
go find the RA song i posted a few pages ago. there's nothing remotely within the same realm of what FOB is playing there. it'd be like suggesting that usher and like, eminem are identical because they both have beats and were on the radio.
I'm sorry, they just sound gener-o-rific to me. There are a whole host of bands that I label generic rock in my head. From metal to hard to pop.
I have tried to *get* RA, and I find it wholly underwhelming.
I listen to plenty crappy and generic bands, so it's not being a snob out of hand.
That's a fine rant and all except Rise Against is really nothing like those ****** pop bands that you listed. They're relatively generic and not amazing but they're a solid band with multiple solid albums. Plus they put on a pretty kick ass show.
They really do put on a great show, every time. I think the last time I saw them was with Comeback Kid. The show ruled pretty hard.
- Jeez, that must have been right after high school. Didn't think it had been that long. I remember wearing my new Comeback Kid shirt at college orientation the next week, which ended up being the opening to the girl I first hit it off with. Orientation ruled. What were we talking about?
-- Nevermind, I saw them with Rancid a couple of years ago. Still fun.
